Operate | Emotional ABCs


Operate | Emotional ABCs

Wake up, eyes open
order of operations
today’s task list scrolls.

Prioritize it
shuffle tasks to fit them all
got twenty-four hours.

Not a smooth operator, just driven.
I’ve got twenty-four hours to spend today.
Open eyes, get up, time to get livin’–
order of operations for the day.
Stay within the lines society draws.
Subconsciousness oozes thoughts between cracks.
Reorder the list, ditch it fast, the flaws
in that plan pile up ’till they fall back.
Respect the order of operations;
do things out of order–create chaos.
Must stick to the plan, work to completion.
Order’s necessity, avoid chaos
I operate at peak efficiency
when everything’s crashing down, don’t you see?

Program interrupts
disconnection evident
operations cease.

Task list deleted
order of operations
logic’s chain’s broken…

    1. Thank you πŸ™‚ It’s been a bit stressful life that must have leaked into the poem πŸ™‚ I like that line too. I wrote it in a comment on Buska’ or Moonskittle’s site and loved it. So I had to find a home for it. πŸ™‚
